About the Lama Chopa Practice
During Lama Chopa (or, in Sanskrit, Guru Puja) we recite various praises, aspirations, and requests and make offerings to the great practitioners of the Buddhadharma, starting with our own lamas and stretching back to Shakyamuni Buddha himself, reinforcing our connection with them and encouraging us to develop our own marvelous potential, becoming just like them.
